To call animal print a trend would be a terrible misrepresentation of fashion staple of dedicated fashionistas. Snakeskin, leopard and tiger have been the absolute, undeniable “must wear” among the high priestesses of la mode spotted on practically every single street style regular.
The controversial print has essentially been embraced as 2019’s equivalent to a neutral: Think leopard print dressed worn with over sized khaki jackets, tiger print coats worn over white tailored separates and a pop of snakeskin in the form or a boot or handbag.
Here is the roundup on pieces available at the best shopping mall in Miami, to convince you it’s time to unleash the animal within.
